As soon as we have discs, it will go on sale. We gave Sony the thumbs up last week, so we should have discs in 2-3 weeks. Until we have inventory, I don't want to provide a date. At CES, we thought we would have it out in March. Discs are actually being pressed now, so it is real.

I don't recall how the last thread was created. It might have been created by an admin. I don't want to get in trouble by creating my own thread. As it is, I am nervous about posting in this thread, which is why I am trying to limit my posts to just answering questions. I don't want to violate forum rules with advertising, etc...

I was gonna say it's not so much personal advertising that's the issue, it's if you're advertising things offsite that directly counter what this site does - reviews and whatnot - that they get the hump about it. But you're a content creator, not reviewer, so shill away! And if the site gets a few shekels from people clicking through their links to buy the disc from amazon or whatever then I'm quite sure they won't mind.

In any case: ME WANTEE

You missed nothing; we are @ the evolution's edge of HDR.
With this disc we'll advance further more; about time.

I calibrated my VT30 with it the day I got it. Iconic disc.

Can't wait for its 4K successor.

I have a Vizio and was under the impression the calibrated settings already on the TV are the most accurate for HDR and messing with them can really throw things off

Every serious HDR TV should include a reference HDR video calibration disc in the box.

For some bizarre reason VIZIO clips whiter than whites. Even in SDR. I had to dial contrast down to 45 to avoid clipping.

Yes. With Contrast at 50 in HDR, my 2017 Vizio M clips at around 1 000 nits. Dialing back to 47 preserves details to 4 000 nits, and 45 will get you all the way to 10 000.

When the link goes live, could Amazon.ca be an option?

Will this disc be useful if the user doesn't have test equipment and is adjusting by eye?
